Default IRC Interruption

Please note that the IRC channel #treeofsouls on Geekshed is currently undergoing some technical issues. You can still join as usual, however, due to a netsplit, not everyone will be connected to the same server.
Services are also down so don't be surprised to see normal users with operator status.
We hope this will be resolves as soon as possible.

So #TreeOfSouls is split into a lot of smaller parts (best way I know how to put it)?

It seems that services are back up and running but the servers aren't merging.
No idea why there are unidentifieds but you can still /nick .
The best thing to do is to connect via IRC on the site or to Tigh server through your client.
tigh.geekshed.net

IRC consists of many networks of many servers each.

Channels reside on networks - across multiple servers.

When you connect to a network, you connect to a single server that is linked to other servers on the network. And a channel on one server is relayed (The R in IRC) across the network to other servers all in sync.

A "Netsplit" is when the connection between servers goes down and thus the network is "Split" into 2 or more segments. With a split network, you end up with basically separate networks, all running independently and out of sync. You can only talk to people on connected network segments. As the networks get split into groups of smaller users, the channels (and other network traffic, like statuses, nick lists, permissions) also get split apart.

At the end of a netsplit, the connection is restored and all the network segments are re-joined back together and all channels merged (along with some fancy stuff to prevent mixups & malicious attacks as everything is re-synced).

That

On just about every modern network, services track the registered owners and ops of a channel and prevent anyone else from gaining ops (normally by joining when empty, which can happen during a split). If services are down or the split causes the server to lose connection to services, it is possible for random users to temporarily gain +o, which is removed when the servers resync.
